"Fraser Brocklehurst bares it all
British artist Fraser Brocklehurst, who lives and works in Prague, is much more of a societal and cultural investigator than your average artist. He probes, goes undercover, and endlessly researches his projects before their completion. Working primarily in video, Fraser appropriates images and text from the flux of daily information — and digs them out from within “forbidden territories.” His visual compilations turn the specific organizations and individuals — and the pinpointed tactics and strategies behind them — inside out, revealing in each the often-hidden face, one very different from what is commonly presented on the surface. Through his use of image and text, all of which he has co-opted, Brocklehurst draws attention to those aspects of public sites that are generally overlooked, and even obscured.
Fraser Brocklehurst’s works unmask the ways in which the organizations he researches and the people involved in them do more than transgress the borders of mainstream morality and ethics. Spectacle isn’t on Brocklehurst’s agenda: His work exposes his subjects’ brutality, blind fury, and ruthlessness as something more worthy of serious scrutiny than simple cultish fascination. While some of the websites he studies state their agenda directly, others are more covert. Perhaps most alarmingly, Brocklehurst exposes the links and similarities between bodies that at first seem quite separately focused. The rough and offensive language of one organization becomes the sentimentally versed phrases of another. Likewise underlying strategies are not, at first glance, detectable; they darkly intertwine. What may appear as a website simply dedicated to Christian worship, becomes the meeting point for extreme religious and activist warriors. These connections, which may seem far fetched, can be traced and what may seem like paranoia is in fact reality
Brocklehurst isn’t a secret agent, nor does he work for any government or organization. He is just someone who goes one step further into T.V. Shopping and Pro-Life activism. He crosses the border between viewer and subject by actually getting involved with the organizations he researches. With a little bit of acting, yet declaring his honest intentions, he squeezes his way into their worlds with the deftness of a documentary filmmaker. The result is a chaotically cohesive view of a world most of us rarely come in contact with. Delving far beyond paranoid conspiracy theories, Brocklehurst combines the hard-to-find facts, weaving a fine web out of what exists right next door, or even in your own home.

Letošní 50. ročník Art Basel přilákal celkem 93 000 návštěvníků a sběratelů z 80 zemí světa. 290 prémiových galerií představilo umělecká díla od počátku 20. století až po současnost. Hlavní sektor přehlídky, tradičně v prvním patře výstavního prostoru, představil 232 předních galerií z celého světa nabízející umění nejvyšší kvality. Veletrh ukázal vzestupný trend prodeje prostřednictvím galerií jak soukromým sbírkám, tak i institucím. Kromě hlavního veletrhu stály za návštěvu i ty přidružené: Volta, Liste a Photo Basel, k tomu doprovodné programy a výstavy v místních institucích, které kvalitou daleko přesahují hranice města tj. Kunsthalle Basel, Kunstmuseum, Tinguely muzeum nebo Fondation Beyeler.
